“This series will benefit everyone, from the racers to The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum,” said Steve Gibbs, director of The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. “It provides a great opportunity to preserve NHRA’s rich heritage through nostalgia drag racing competition.”
On April 19 & 20, 2008, the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series presented it’s first “Sportsman Shootout” at the Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, CA. The weather was in the 80’s and very comfortable for the racers and spectators. Qualifying for 200 anxious race cars in 12 classes began Saturday. Sunday began the exiting rounds of head to head competition to crown a winner in each class. The quickest elapsed time of the event was Kin Bates Sr. with a 6.308 seconds! The fastest speed was 233.24 mph by Nick Norton!
Plan to come to future NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series events May 2,3,4 in Las Vegas, June 1 in Bakersfield, then back here at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana Sept 13,14. For complete information on these events and results contact, www.NHRA.com.
